traffic jam next month

I am going to bid that on 3rd November, there will be traffic jam in Sydney's Tempe area. Why? IKEA Tempe opens on 3rd November, which is only about 2 weeks from now.

IKEA Tempe opens

This IKEA is believed to be the biggest one in southern hemisphere. It's 37,000 sq m with about 2000 car park spaces, which can be translated to 20 soccer fields.

IKEA is also famous for one-way shopping aisle (if you don't take any shortcuts), and the Tempe one will be 2.5km from entry to exit. Good for exercise I take.

Last month, I took a trip to IKEA (Homebush Bay) in a normal day afternoon at a ridiculous 19.95 kph (km/hr). Not long before that Don whined his trip at still reasonable 50 kph to reputable RIT from picturesque Quincy just after the US government's over-reacting on tropical storm Irene.

Location:
634 – 726 Princes Highway, Tempe.

Opening hours
Monday - Friday: 10am - 9pm
Saturday and Sunday: 9am - 7pm

I have a feeling that local residents will hate the additional traffic.
